    I found this heat shield and was wondering if it could fit the FP manifold?

    Looks like an Evo heat shield. I don't think it would fit properly at all.

    I don't think Tomei makes anything for a DSM, it looks like a shield for a stock Evo manifold.

    Sorry I forgot to mention the heat shield was for Evo VIII-IX.

    Depending on how low that bolt hole is in front of the heat shield, it might fit the stock MHI housing heat shield bolt hole.

    the only problem I see is that the FP manifold runner number 4 protrudes past the MHI housing.

    I'm just trying to find a heat shield to cover it for smog. I found this one and wanted to know what you guys had to say. I tried searching to see write ups on modified stock heat shields, other car heat shields that will go with the manifold. I cant find a JMF heat shield because they stop making them.

    Like said above, just mod a stock one if it's for emissions. Attach some aluminum or steel strap to it and attach it somewhere so it sits on top of the manifold.

    The only type of shield that will work is one that attaches it to the base of the manifold at the flange since there are not threaded spots on the manifold.

    Have you tried emailing them. I did this with my coolant reservoir and they made one for me.

    You will have to fabricate one, and weld on boss's to the manifold and bolt the fabricated heat shield on. Also I would recommend coming up with something for insulation. I used DEI thermal reflective tape on the underside of my manifold heat shield. However I am considering adding some tabs under the manifold and exhaust wrap.

    Well I'll have to get another stock heat shield to practice on. I'll have to look at my local junk yards. I found a few last time I was there. I'll keep you guys posted if I come up with an idea on the mod.
